Southeast Asia’s premier Build Eco Xpo, BEX Asia is back from September 13-15 at the new Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

Focused on green building architecture, design, products, practices and technologies for environmental sustainability, BEX Asia 2010 provides a platform for industry practitioners, professionals and key buyers across the region to network and do business with Southeast Asia’s developing economies.

The four-day event is being staged alongside the *World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) International Congress 2010 and the inaugural Singapore Green Building Council (SGBC) ‘Green Building Conference’.

It will be the first time the WorldGBC International Congress has taken place in Asia and is part of the lead up to World Green Building Day on 23 September.

In partnership with the SGBC and Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA), the trio of eco-events combine to create Southeast Asia’s biggest and most important gathering of ‘green’ builders and property developers ever organised. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and engage with invited experts at workshops, tours and talks scheduled throughout the four days.

Over 200 exhibiting companies from more than 20 countries internationally will showcase their latest environmentally-friendly building technologies, products, concepts and solutions at BEX Asia 2010. Major players to showcase include BASF, Carrier, EnGro Corporation Limited, Johnson Controls and Trane.

“BEX Asia is quickly establishing itself as a must-attend event in the industry by offering a platform for exhibitors to present their products and to educate potential customers on the benefits of their solutions,” said Michelle Lim, Managing Director of Reed Exhibitions

In tandem with growing global concern and commitment to environmental sustainability, BEX Asia has gone from strength-to-strength since its inception in 2008. It has grown from 100 exhibiting companies in the first year to more than 200 in its third year, and from 4000 visitors in its first year to an expected 7,000 this year.

“We expect the momentum to continue this year with possibly another record-breaking turnout,” added Ms Lim.

About WorldGBC International Congress

The WorldGBC International Congress forum, a series of sessions from senior government officials, industry experts and a minister from China, India, Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia will also play a poignant role during the event. Discussion topics will include: A World Green Building Campaign, Tackling Global Climate Change, Meeting Local Priorities; Rating Tools and Common Carbon Metric; Policies Paradise (with UNEP); Innovations in Financing Green Solutions.

One of the highlights of the show will be “Leadership in Green Building Lecture Series 6” led by green building experts from around the world including David Johnson, Westcoast Director, San Francisco of William McDonough + Partners, and Bill Odell, Director, Science and Technology Group The HOK Group.

SGBC’s inaugural “Green Building Conference” on Day Three will tackle various debates pertaining Zero Energy Buildings and Cutting Edge Green Building Technologies and Designs, with practical application through case study analysis.
